one more week...


outside my window... humid, hot and balmy!
i am thankful for... the written word.
i am wearing... my pj's
noticing that... my handwriting is not as nice as before... probably due to only using the key-board!
i am still reading... "knit two" by kate jacobs.
on my mind... my health.
pondering these words.. a ship in harbor is safe but that is not what ships are built for. -w.shedd-
around the house... steamy windows.
from the kitchen... cup of coffee & cinnamon raisin bread.
one of my favorite things... jigsaw puzzles.
i'm creating... this post.
 a few plans for the rest of the week... hair appointment, pay bills, shopping, pack suitcases...
from my lens...

another storm approaching - another rainbow!

one more week and off i go to the greek islands! do you believe how time is flying?
i'm already running around trying to do a bunch of things before my trip and of course working on my to-do list of things to pack.

i am so relieved the blood-work showed my iron levels up to 7 (they were 2 before).  i am for sure feeling a lot better but i'm afraid not 100% myself yet. hopefully levels will keep on climbing and i don't find myself feeling lousy during the trip.
i can help it but to start feeling a bit overwhelm but i guess i always tend to get like this before any trip - short or long. 

remember those doodles i have been mentioning? well, i am finally done - what do you think?
 i am sure we all can find a page or two in which to use a friends word art, right? have fun and remember to leave me links to your layouts.

here's my page with some of my on-line friends - i would have definitely needed a bigger template with lots more little squares to fit them all!
